Sew Many Card Friday Freebie

Does this bear not make you want to squeeze him? I think this image is absolutely adorable (well all of Angela's images are but.....this one is the friday freebie). I used a sketch from (cardsketch 5) and I had to alter it a little as I couldn't get a nice large scalloped rectangle the size I wanted. The nice ladies over at the cricut chat message board gave me some info on that but I was too impatient to put my card together and I decided to just go with some scalloped edges. I don't think about pulling kraft out very much but I do like the look of it with these pastel colors. Hope you enjoy and be sure to go over to Sew Many Cards and save your copy of this adorable image!

Over at Sew Many Cards we are all so excited as our first monthly new release party and blog hop starts tomorrow!

You don't want to miss any of the fun because there are lots of challenges and prizes starting today (here) with a scavenger hunt! There are several creations posted and all you have to do is find the name of the images used and leave a comment.

Sew Many Cards Fall Challenge

This week's challenge over at Sew Many Cards is to make a fall card and to use buttons, brads, or flowers. I am loving these digital images because unlike traditional stamps I can size it to fit whatever size card I want to make. I chose to make a square card this time and I colored my image in with my copics and then used my nesties to layer him up. I also used my new nestie tags to make the sentiment and then placed buttons on either side with a little bling in the center. Hope you enjoy and will come on over and join in on the challenge!

Sew Many Cards - FRIDAY FREEBIE!!! Mojo Monday Sketch!

Isn't this image just ADORABLE? Guess what? You can get it for FREE!!! This is Angela's Friday Freebie over at Sew Many Cards this week. I had so much fun making this card! I started out with this wonderful Mojo Monday Sketch which made putting it together so easy. I used my copic markers to color and then added SU's diamond glitter (love that stuff) to Santa's hat and clothing. I used fun flock for his beard and embossed a new Hero Arts stamp for the snowflake greeting. My red embossing powder didn't work very well - I wonder if it is because it is actually very very old - does it go bad???? Anyone know??? Hope you are gearing up for a wonderful weekend!

Sew Many Cards Color Challenge

Angela's challenge this week is to use pink/green/white on our project (any image and the image can be colored with any colors). I am so drawn to Morty that I just had to pick this cute image. The sweetness of the colors and this sweet little Moose just seem to "fit"! I used a sketch from Mojo Monday that I've been wanting to try as I've not made a long skinny card. I believe it is 91 or 97 if you want to check it out - I shrunk the image somewhat and my ink has faded so I can't read the number very well (couldn't possibly have anything to do with my eyesight). Be sure to stop by Sew Many Cards and play along this week!

Sew Many Cards - Friendship Challenge

Angela challenged us to make a friendship card this week using red and/or yellow and any other colors we wanted and we could choose any image. I picked this cute new Eris with flowers image and I just happened to have this yellow patterned paper with red flourishes so...I just went with it. I love the way it turned out is pretty "loud" for me. Sometimes it is really fun to get away from those favorite color combos we always reach for! Hope you like it! Be sure to join in on the challenge!

Practical Scrappers Decorative Scissors Challenge

Decorative Scissors? Say What? This week's challenge over at Practical Scrappers is to pull out those decorative scissors and use them on a project. Well, I don't know what possessed me to decide to do a background with them like this because I can barely cut a straight line with my nice big 12" paper cutter! After many tries I did finally get a few straight cuts so I could make this background and I think it turned out pretty cute. This image is just one of Angela's new Sewn Together designs over at Sew Many Cards and it just fit perfect! I wish I had used a light green for my little scallops but hindsight is 20-20. I thought this light violet would have a better contrast to my pink than it did but....I didn't have time to turn back as I needed to use this baby card right away. Hope you have an awesome day!
